Why We Love It: Pinterest and Instagram are flooded with quotes about learning from your mistakes, but what does that mean for direct sellers? Any time you approach a new beginning – starting a family, launching a business, or approaching self-improvement – you are bound to stumble and occasionally stall. In direct sales, you can lean not only on your own experience, but on the leaders and industry veterans who have done before you. Your upline leaders have already made the mistakes – they stumbled, they stalled, and then they moved forward again. And the best leaders know how to use their own expertise and skills to enhance the people around them. This book is an excellent guide to the qualities that help the best leaders amplify their teams.
Book Summary: A thought-provoking, accessible, and essential exploration of why some leaders (“Diminishers”) drain capability and intelligence from their teams, while others (“Multipliers”) amplify it to produce better results. Including a foreword by Stephen R. Covey, as well the five key disciplines that turn smart leaders into genius makers, Multipliers is a must-read for everyone from first-time managers to world leaders. – Amazon
